Standard Winter Program
The standard winter program does not use volunteers at the office, and does not use a team – centric approach to collection of data. Interaction with individual spotters is used for the standard winter program.
Effective collection of winter weather data can be achieved using standard tools, and use of those standard tools is being encouraged by the agency supported.
The above is used in the rare instance that the tools referenced in the guide are not available. Teams will be notified when the alternatives are necessary.
